Sorry for the dirt on the frame because i made the maiden today, immediately finished mounting this build.
It fly great under Emuflight with the Pierre Meunier preset for 5" (a french frestyle pilot).
I've chosen these Azure 4.8" props because of the high KV motors, an also the short arms.
I will try others propellers like my favorite T-Motor 5143, or the Ethix S3/S4 i have never tested yet.

how is the clone frame

I paid 35€ for this frame with 5.5mm arms. Good quality even if the carbon is mat unlike the high-end glossy frames. The hardware quality (screws and standoffs) is very good for this product range. I think the big difference is in the choice of components like motors, FC and ESC. I replaced the chineese screws with inox torx T10 screws.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone!

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
